The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~John Greer

You don't take a photograph, you make it. ~Ansel Adams

The Earth Has Music For Those Who Listen.

"I still find each day to short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see"

~ John Burroughs

Stand By




We live at the edge of the miraculous.

“The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself”

Why are we so full of restraint? Why do we not give in all directions? Is it fear of losing ourselves? Until we do lose ourselves there is no hope of finding ourselves.

Henry Miller

 REAL PEACE
The peace I am talking about is the peace without which we would lose the very
fabric of who we are, the peace that dances in the heart of everyone. The reality. The
beauty. The joy. The true peace—not an absence of something, but the very presence
of something. That is what is alive. That is what is possible. Even in the middle of a
war, a person can experience this peace.
Some people think freedom is when you get away from your house for the weekend.
To teenagers, freedom is when they leave their parents’ house. Freedom to parents
is when their teenagers actually leave, not just threaten to leave, but actually leave.
Is that freedom?
Freedom from my troubles. Is that freedom? Freedom from my concerns. Is that
freedom? Freedom from my responsibilities. Is that freedom?
I talk about a freedom that can be felt even in a prison. That’s the freedom that
no one can take away from me. Peace that cannot be disturbed—that is real peace.
Freedom that cannot be taken away—that is real freedom.

Who am I? Who are you? We have a singular quest to better
ourselves—to evolve, to move forward, to improve upon all
that can be improved. To make it better.
My message is about the possibility of the ultimate betterment
of a human being—not of mankind, not of a country, not of
a social belief, but of a human being. And it is not through
religion or doctrine, not through ideas or concepts. Neither is
it through hearsay or repetition.
It is through each individual exploring and finding the beauty
within themselves.

Beauty is certainly a soft, smooth, slippery thing, and therefore of a nature which easily slips in and permeates our souls.
